At least six people have been killed and 11 injured after a fire broke out in a residential building in Zakir Nagar area of Southeast Delhi late on Monday night.
The injured were shifted to a hospital for treatment. At least 20 people have been rescued from the spot. Two fire personnel have also been injured.
The fire broke out in a four-storey building in Zakir Nagar area of Delhi at 2.30 am. The incident happened when most of the people of the area were asleep.
Soon after the incident, seven fire tenders were rushed to spot and the fire was extinguished. The narrow lanes of the area posed a major challenge for rescue personnel to enter the area and the gutted building.
At least seven cars and eight motorcycles were reportedly gutted in the fire.
According to a report, Dr Mala, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) at Holy Family Hospital said, “Five patients are in the intensive care unit (ICU), some are in the ward and one is in Pediatric ICU.”
